Television series that aired on UPN and followed Nick O'Malley (Michael Landes) and Kate Benson (Alexondra Lee), two Chicago detectives who work for the titular agency, which is charged with dealing with supernatural monsters called "Links."Lasted only 2 seasons (strictly speaking two half-seasons). Running from April, 2001 to February, 2002. A total of 19 episodes.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Carl killed a dragon once. It was more by accident than on purpose, but still considered an impressive feat. note The dragon slipped on a rainy roof while trying to eat him, impaling itself on a spire.
Cowboy Cop: Nick has little regard for rules. Not that there are that many regarding links but still he doesn't care about them.
Da Chief: Captain Page is the head of SU2, which is a sub-division of the Chicago police department.
Deadpan Snarker: Everyone has their moments, but Nick and Carl the most often.
Didn't See That Coming: Nick was able to capture the Chameleon the first time around because an early snow storm threw off its hibernation cycle.
The Face: Carl is the SU2 liason to the link underworld. He's not personable or friendly to say the least but he does have useful connections and considering other links want nothing to do with SU2 he's a step up.
Literal Genie: One of the links exploited this for her Evil Plan. It involved manipulating people into talking figuratively which she could then interpret literally. Unlike a typical genie, this one only had one power - to turn into a puff of smoke and hide in a container. All wishes have to be done the old fashioned way (e.g. someone asks for a model, she has to go and kidnap one).
Love God: Cupid is a human-looking Link who, when frightened, emits pheromones that make someone inexplicably attracted to someone near them. He also has a very big heart, causing issues when he has to be taken somewhere on a helicopter.
Master of Illusion: One featured Link, the Chameleon, has the ability to read a person's mind and disguise itself as a familiar face. This allows it to kill its prey and elude capture with far more ease than others.
Mummy: A Japanese mummy is revived by a lightning strike. Bonus points for mentioning that it's very rare for the Japanese to mummify someone due to space being a premium in Japan, meaning that the mummy is someone who was a great samurai when he was alive. As such, you don't wanna mess with it, especially since this one can appear as a normal man and can kick anyone else's ass. The mummy's goal is to kidnap three women "from different corners of the world" (i.e. 1 white, 1 black, 1 Asian) and sacrifice them in a ritual to boost his power Up to Eleven.
Monster of the Week: Each week has a new link causing trouble in Chicago. The responses range from killing to imprisonment, but usually killing.
No One Could Survive That: At the end of "The Eve," Nick and Kate fire on the unnamed Link, seemingly vaporizing him. However, since no one knows his biology, they have no idea what his remains would be, assuming he left any. After Kate suggests it would be impossible for this Link to have survived, Captain Page points out the grim reality of SU2 that anything is possible.
They Walk Among Us: Links are everywhere; a sphinx sat in front of a college because others thought it was a statue.
Weirdness Censor: Kate was recruited because she didn't have one. Everyone else either doesn't see the links or convinces themselves they didn't. One guy was abducted by a mummy and told everyone it was some guy in bandages.
Weirdness Magnet: Kate is shown or stated to have had encounters with monsters since childhood. It is implied that all members of SU2 have had similar experiences.
The World Is Not Ready: While people tend to have a Weirdness Censor, SU2 makes sure to keep the Links situation under wraps. Nick mentions how he once destroyed Kate's photographic proof months before she joined the department.
